Meet John Hammons, a 19-year-old college freshman at the University of Oklahoma. He was just elected mayor of Muskogee, a city of 38,000 in northeastern part of the state!
Hammons, who will be sworn in next week, said he plans to continue his college education but expects to transfer to a school closer to Muskogee.
"Being elected does not change my desire to continue my education," he said. "We will schedule our time in an appropriate fashion so that I can be mayor and stay in school."
And perhaps he has good ideas!..I mean to get majority votes over 40,000 people?...that's pretty impressive!
Do your thing John!...we will be sure to meet one day!..good luck and keep your eyes on the prize sir!
I look forward with genuine excitement to see the results of such a young mayor. As a former citizen of Muskogee, I hope it works out well, 'cause it kinda needs some improvement.
well, that'll keep him out of a lot of the trouble mayors seem to get into. :-)
